tioned. I do not fear him but I really regret on account of per-
sonal friendships, that he has determined to pursue this course.
I will inform you from time to time of my progress. We are all
well. I am afraid the cholera will spread over the country. I
think however the chief mischief will be confined to the towns-
San Antonio at this time is suffering greatly from it. The num-
ber of deaths there has been as high as 25 a day. Most of the
population has fled from the place to the Ranches on the Cibola
and below the town.
We are grateful to you and your good Uncle for your kindness
to Lavinia. Your Uncle became a favorite with all the family
while here and most frequently they speak of him and you. I
deeply regret that I was in the worst possible state of mind for
sociability when you were here, and I know that you and your
Uncle had cause at times to complain of me. You know but im-
perfectly the extent and depth of my derangement of mind & -
Your Uncle however is too good to retain anything but pleasant
recollections of anybody or things seen in Texas. I hope to see
you both here again; I am anxious that you should come. I am
glad that you were pleased with Texas. I am glad to hear of the
health of the city toward the Lunatic Asylum. The Brazos re-
mains in as disturbed a condition as when you left, indeed there
has been no change for the better. I have grown independent and

Your Uncle promised to write to me. Tell him I would be
highly gratified to hear from him for I am really attached to him.
Mr. Perry received a letter from him while in N. Orleans. Mr.
Sam HIarris showed me his card a few days since and spoke of
him as one whom he liked-his jokes, &c. &c. Tell him he must
come back next winter and take a drink at another spring. We
have one here that "will polish his manners." The family all
send their regards. No marriages and no deaths ambng friends
here. Give my very best regards to your Mother, Mr. & Mrs.
Platt and shake your Uncle truly by the hand for me.
Yours sincerely, as ever
Guy M Bryan
